Creative Baby, Shipley Art Gallery, Gateshead
CREATIVE BABY! SENSORY PLAY
The age range has been extended to include babies up to 18 months. Sessions will take place once a month throughout 2019, on a Friday morning. Dates after April 2019 will be released later in the year.
Once a month, the gallery is transformed into an imaginative sensory play space. Explore dens, lights, mirrors, music and interesting objects, and relax amongst the exhibitions. The play space is different every time, so there are always new things to discover.
The play space has been designed to appeal to babies from newborn to 18 months, and caters for all stages of development.
Set in our main exhibition space, this is a great way to introduce your baby to the magic of art galleries, and relax and socialise amongst the exhibitions.
There is no need to arrive for a set time and you can bring as many adults as you like, at no extra cost.
Tickets are available for the following sessions:
10.30am - 12.00pm
Friday 25 January
Friday 15 Feb
Friday 22 March
Friday 26 April
£5 per baby per session, accompanying adults free.
